  Research Notes:

LOGYDURNO

This is a local spelling of the 17th century of Logie Durno or Durnock, words signifying "a low or hollow place".

It later was referred to Chapel of Garioch, in the Garioch district of Aberdeenshire, about 5 miles north-west of Inverurie. Logie-Durno Church was a medieval church and dedicated to St Mary. It was an appendage of Lindores Abbey but became disused at the start of the 17th century when the parish of Logie Durno was united with Chapel of Garioch (1599).

The Family Search website comments that
"upon the annexation of the parsonage of Fetternear, situated on the north of the river Don, to that of this parish, on the north side of the Urie, early in the seventeenth century, the church of Logie Durno was disused, and a new one built on the spot where had once been a chapel called Capella BeatŠ MariŠ Virginis de Garryoch, whence the present name of the parish."

Logie Durno Churchyard lies east of the A95 and forms a triangle with Old Rayne to the north-west and Oyne to the south-west, about 3 or 4 miles apart. 6 7 8
